Bonjour ladies and gentlemen! Today's daily scribe will be TWO STEPS ALGEBRA. So we will begin in 3, 2, 1...

Starting with the first example: 3n + 8 =20

Step 1. Remove the zero pairs. Use the opposite operation to remove zero pairs. Do the same thing to the answer using the same number you've used to remove the zero pairs.
Step 2.  After you've removed the zero pairs, you are left with a co-efficient variable and an answer.
Step 3. Now uses the opposite operation using the number of the co-efficient variable. Do the same thing to the answer.
Step 4. You are now left with the answer( make sure the letter is always on the left side).

NOW FOR THE SECOND EXAMPLE:
Step 1. Do the same thing as Step 1 and Step 2.
Step 2. For the opposite operation, instead of using adding and subtracting sign, use a multiplication sign ( ). What is the opposite of division? Multiplication.
Step 3. Now, multiply the co- efficient variable to get to a zero pair. On the other side, just multiply it.
Step 4. NOW YOU ARE LEFT WITH THE ANSWER.

If my explanation is bad here is a video of a person doing a much better job than I am. :)

THANK YOU FOR LOOKING AT THIS SCRIBE!!!

PS: DO NOT FORGET TO VERIFY YOUR ANSWER CAUSE IF YOU DO NOT VERIFY MR. HARBECK WILL LOOK FOR YOU AND HE WILL FIND YOU.
THANK YOU ;)
